People think rare dog is a statue after pictures posted online

It's not everyday you see a dog that looks like a statue...

In fact, this is the first time I have ever come across an animal that resembled a sculpture cast in bronze.

On first glance, this dog does absolutely look like a statue, it's quite astonishing.

But upon further inspection of the Instagram account that its owner runs for their dogs, I can assure you that it is in fact a living, sentient hound.

The dog first caught the internet's attention when its owner, Sandra Pineda, from Quezon City in the Philippines, shared a photo of her beloved pet, Piper, online.

Normal behaviour for a dog owner. That picture received 10,000 likes in one hour, apparently, with countless comments asking if it was in fact a real animal.

Piper is a Mexican Hairless Dog, or if you prefer its proper name, a Xoloitzcuintli. Sandra bought Piper last March, when she was only two months old.
